Landmark centre for creative business and Chinese culture opens in Nottingham!

May 24th 2018

by Nottingham City Council

The Chinese city of Hangzhou – close to Shanghai and Nottingham’s sister city Ningbo and home to 10 million people - has brought its first ever international creative trade embassy to Nottingham.

Life Announcements

“Nottingham is a city which is proud of its global connections and is home to citizens and businesses from many different cultures including China.”

“Nottingham is an open, outward looking city which is engaging with the world and wants to use opportunities like this to promote trade and investment and share cultural experiences with China.”

“The launch of this venture in Nottingham is a tangible way for us to show how this relationship brings real benefits for the people of Nottingham.”

“The City of Hangzhou choosing Nottingham for what is effectively its first creative embassy anywhere in the world is a massive vote of confidence in Nottingham’s creative economy and the city’s position as a gateway to the UK market.”

“In setting up shop in Sneinton Market it’s clear they know it’s the new place to be in Nottingham, but this is not just an opportunity for the Chinese, it’s a great chance for Nottingham’s creative businesses to connect with the massive Chinese market. A chance not to be missed.”
